Cream Cheese Peppermint Mints

Cream Cheese Peppermint Mints

4 ounces cream cheese, softened
16 ounces confectioners' sugar, sifted
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
superfine sugar for rolling

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar, a cup at a time, until the mixture combines and forms a stiff dough. Add peppermint extract - start small and give it a taste, add more if needed and mix to combine.

Scoop out the dough and knead a few times until it is very smooth and stiff. If the dough is still a bit sticky, add additional confectioners' sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, until it does not stick to your hands. You don't want the dough to be dry, but it should be firm. Break off small pieces about the size of a marble, roll in granulated sugar and press into your candy mold. Remove and place on a wire rack or baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place in the freezer (or refrigerator) until your ready to use them!
